HHS produces videos that inform the public of services that benefit Texans. Through narration and candid interview responses, viewers are given information from experts and service recipients.
Behavioral Health Support in the Community
People with substance use and mental health issues have options on how and where they can receive help. Assistance in the community allows for you to receive the help you need while remaining a part of your community.
